Taj Protected Forest

The lush green expanse to the east of the Taj Mahal Complex is the Taj Protected Forest. As the name suggests, the area has been reserved and protected by the government from the rampant urbanization owing to the tourist significance of the city. The green cover becomes especially pertinent because of its location on the banks of the Yamuna river close to the Taj Mahal. The success of the initiative can be gauged from the fact that a number of migratory birds have been spotted in the region. Though most of the forest is closed to visitors, a part of it can be accessed from the Taj Nature Walk close by.

A beautiful natural forest-cover spreading over an area of 70 hectares, just 500 mts away from the Eastern Gate of Taj Mahal. An excellent view of the Taj is available from the different species are also seen here.
